het Bruidsmeisje: Wedding planner A to Z
On Landgoed Rhederoord we've organized many beautiful weddings as a wedding planner (+/- 15 weddings). Take a look at these weddings:
September 2013: after having been together for eight years, with a son to show for it, there was a proposal. Yes! Of course I want to marry you.
January 2015: Say, darling... don't you think we should start organising our wedding one of these days? Yes dear, but I really don’t have much time at the moment…
And that is how Vivian entered our lives. And literally, from our first encounter at the beginning of February until our fabulous wedding weekend in August we had a lot of contact with each other, nearly every day via email, but also often on the phone or at the wedding location.
From the very first conversation she came up with all kinds of delightful ideas, things we never would never have thought of ourselves. We quickly decided we wanted to have an entire weekend, with a laidback wedding on the first day and a huge wild party on the next day.
Vivian immediately had a number of good suggestions for venues where we could celebrate both days in a fun way, and where all the guests could stay the night. After visiting the Rhederoord estate we were completely sold and we could start making big plans.
Styling, music, flowers, photography and video, the ceremony and the programme, cake, gowns and suits, nanny, bonfire, GuestCam, crazy gadgets and fun stuff; Vivian knew all the best places to get these. Because most of the contacts with the vendors went through her, things really got done quickly. And whenever we came up with our own ideas, or if we had questions, she would get right at it and make sure everything turned out all right.
With the help of a clear styling guide and later an extensive programme everything was taken care of with great attention to detail, and nothing was left to chance.
Even on 14 August when bad weather threatened to ruin our outdoor wedding, she remained calm and quickly organised a second setting. Luckily the weather gods were on our side, and while the rest of the country had torrential showers, we were able to say "I do" in the bright sunshine.
Vivian, together with her colleague Oleta, stayed the entire weekend and continued to be our MC to make sure everything went well and the guests had everything they needed. Because of that we were able to enjoy ourselves to the max, and didn’t have to worry about a thing.
In short, thanks to Vivian and her team we had a fantastic wedding weekend, and all our guests were also super enthusiastic. Vivian, thanks again for all the care you and your team put into our wedding! We're going to miss you ;-)
